Students



Looking for a master's thesis project? Check out the list of projects. or check out the DIS group's thesis projects page.

Master’s students in HCI, AI, Cognitive (Neuro-)science and/or (Interaction) Design Engineering across any Dutch university / institute are welcome to apply.

You will be doing a scientific internship with us here in Amsterdam at CWI as part of your master’s thesis project. We strongly encourage publishing at top-tier conference venues (e.g., CHI, UbiComp, ...), and will mentor you as such. If a topic interests you, do get in touch, and I will share more detailed information. Also, you're welcome to propose your own topic, so long as it’s within the broad areas of HCI, Affective Computing, AR/VR/MR, or AI.
